    One Reply to “Once Upon A Curse: 17 Dark Faerie Tales”

    1. Some of these stories were pretty good, and some were quite good However quite a few seemed like teasers for longer stories than polished stand alone stories Oh, and as a side comment, I really like the cover.

    2. Actual rating 3.5As with all anthologies, there are some stand outs and some passable stories Overall, an enjoyable read and a great way to sample some new fantasy authors.

    3. A poor anthology on the whole, with all of its 17 retellings not worth above a 1 2 stars rating, in my opinion, save for four short stories that stood out to me The editor in charge didn t have high standards for choosing what to include, is the impression I m getting, for anything everything submitted seems to have been accepted The stories are dull and forgettable, when not downright bad, and besides that, the book is mislabelled Dark Faerie Tales, the title says, but what exactly is dark abou [...]

    4. Incredible I purchased this book because I love Yasmine Galenorn s stories I knew her story Bones would be spectacular It was I wouldn t mind seeing a new spinoff from this story This book is filled with 17 glorious stories by very talented authors I loved it Every possible variation of faery tale I ve heard and many I ve not are here Thrilling, twisted, sizzling, spine tingling mesmerizing stories that will have your brain spinning Oh, are you in for a treat

    5. This collection of fantasy and fairy tale short stories is excellent I have read all the stories in the collection, and the standard of writing is consistently very high There are a couple of outstanding tales in the mix, but I m not going to play favourites here.My recommendation is simple Get a copy, read it, discover at least a dozen authors you want of As I write, the price on is 0.99 What are you waiting for

    6. Interesting anthology.My biggest gripe with the book is that most of the stories left us with a HUH when they were finished It s like some of them were chapters out of other stories and just ended abruptly Others, we got no hint of back story and when something happened I just looked around like WTF just happened here Not all of them were dark , lots had some sort of happy ending Others were just plain WEIRD So it was ok But I won t put it in my reread pile.

    7. As is often the case with anthologies, I liked some of these shorts a lot than others I don t know how this is usually handled with anthologies, but it didn t feel like the whole book was edited by one editor I d really enjoy one story, and then the next one would have spelling mistakes, missing words, and other grammar issues Given that the whole book was advertised as having been written by bestselling authors, I was disappointed with the quality.Some shorts ended in surprising ways, while ot [...]

    8. A collection of short stories which take our favorite fairy tale characters creatures spins the tales we know I really enjoyed reading each story love the darker twist on each one.

    9. leiturasdelaura.bNas minhas leituras noturnas di rias eu tenho dado prefer ncia por livros de contos ou que n o me mantenham acordada a noite inteira, e como no m s passado o tema era livros que lembrassem o Halloween essa resenha est atrasada, claro , achei que uma colet nea de contos de fada um pouco mais dark seria bastante apropriado E a capa, a capa desse livro linda, totalmente irresist vel na hora de comprar, levando em considera o que eu gosto do tema, claro.Infelizmente, a colet nea n o [...]

    10. Not All Curses Are Created Equal So far I have only read one story from this Anthology I will update my review as I read The Variance Court by Alexia PurdyFar From FaerieThis seems to be a stand alone story Hopefully it won t always be Aylin is a nonmagickal girl living within a very magical world Variance is incredibly dangerous for those without magick so she has never left her home Her father used to go to town and trade at least once a year but he died Should she stay safe at home Or ventur [...]

    11. This was pretty goodI liked most of the storiesI am even going to read the series of a few based off of these short ones I really enjoy these short story reads especially when they are based off of fairy tales There are a few that just left you wanting, like it wasn t wrapped up like I feel it should be for a book like this Some of the shorts seemed like you were only getting a small piece while wanting you to buy the full lengthThat is not why I enjoy these stories Though I do admit I do read t [...]

    12. I just love the way that different authors put together short stories that will totally keep your interest ALICE by Julia Crane is one of those short stories that will definitely keep your interest I don t write spoilers and believe me, it is not an easy task to write a review of such a short work and not end up telling the whole story Alice is a twisted tale of Alice and Wonderland and it will totally keep your interest from the start until the end Alice is facing madness and an ominous prophec [...]

    13. Normally, this kind of book would be RIGHT up my street I ve devoured the fairy tale series that windling and datlow edited, and loved them all This collection, however, is VERY uneven The first story was very good, I liked the last story, and there were a few in between that were good, but oh MAN, were some of them bad Just so poorly written Typos, inappropriate word choices, clunky awkward dialogue, the works Most were pretty short, so I powered through, but only a few of them were really wort [...]

    14. This is a review on only Alexia Purdy s story, The Variance Court I will try to remember to update the review when I have finished the other stories.I absolutely loved The Variance Court Alexia Purdy switches, seamlessly, from real world to fantasy world and the characters are complex, having rich backstories that I would love to hear about very soon I hope we are treated to a series in this rich fantasy world

    15. There are 17 dark fairy tales in this book and most rate as 4 to 4.5 stars I enjoyed reading them very much It was nice to be able to end a story and then do something else rather than the way I normally read a book Usually I tell myself okay, I ll read until the end of this chapter but I end up reading 3 10 chapters and staying awake all night Hope you enjoy it as well as I did.

    16. This book has a lot of wonderful stories There are a couple of stories that didn t grab me but it might be someone else cup of tea I enjoyed a lot of the stories Some stories grabbed me so much I want to see other books by the authors Thank you for the adventures, I so enjoyed them.

    17. Pick a tale of fae, any tale of fae, and ten put a dark spin on it and you will get this book A lovely darkish tome it is too

    18. 1 Yarrow, Sturdy Bright by Devon Monk 3 Stars The tailor s son has not returned for a year and Yarrow decided it was time to go in search of him Her grandmother tells her that she must kill the piper to get the tailor s son back and gives her a weapon to use against him This was good, had a very classic fairy tale feel with a HEA.2 Fae Horse A Faery Tale by Anthea Sharp 3 Stars Short heartbreaking story about giving up yourself for the sake of the one you love.3.The Queen of Frost Darkness by Ch [...]

    19. So I have NOT yet completed this entire novel Once Upon A Curse 17 Dark Faerie Tales But I have read a majority of the tales now And whilst I don t know how I feel about the Novel overall, I thought it best to give each tale a short review Here goes nothing 1.Yarrow, Sturdy and Bright by Devon Monk I thought this was a great way to start the Novel it was quick, and had a happy ending Great 2 Fae Horse by Anthea Sharp This has probably been one of my favourites so far This one was a lot darker, [...]

    20. It s anthology time again what can I say I like short stories This time we re looking at a collection of dark fairy tales by a multitude of writers who came together to give us seventeen tales How d it turn out Well, let s just dive right into this.Each story in this book is a reworking of a preexisting tale Some of them are obvious like The Queen of Frost and Darkness, Beauty Inside Beast, and Still Red Others, however, become clear once you actually start reading it Those remaining are newish [...]

    21. I didn t enjoy this collection of stories I knew from the offset that this might be the case but where to start Everything and almost everyone was too perfect Flat screen tvs, modelling contracts, princesses with perfect hair and perfect pouts, desperate and hungry kisses Bleurgh Every character had such selfish, trivial and internalised issues that it made for boring reading The conflict was all made up, some of the writing and punctuation was absolutely abysmal.

    22. Loads of Talent in this OneMost of these stories are enjoyable and very well written I was surprised at the amount of talent in this collection, so many good authors who are so creative.My favorite story was one where a woman painted herself into scenes, such as a house for shelter The story gets complicated, but I won t add any spoilers here I also liked the story Alice, a take off on Alice in Wonderland, though the book, Alice in Wonderland, is not a faerie tale.

    23. All the stories are greatI knew I liked retold fairy tales but these are exceptional I ve read some of these authors before and was pleased to read them again, I very much enjoyed that they stepped outside just a bit of their norm As always I am happy to have found some new authors by reading a collection Thanks guys, for contributing.

    24. Pleasant if a little uneven collection Some are imaginative and interesting re imaginings of classic fairy tales or myths and some are almost exact retellings set in a different place All in all a good read.

    25. A mixed bag of stories The quality of stories in this collection varies Many of the shorts lacked background about the lands they were set in, and a few felt scattered Some of these were enjoyable, but some just wasted time.

    26. Not All DarkI would have captioned this as alternative faerie tales because some are quite bright and beautiful This was a very pleasant read, but not the best for bedtime because I kept wanting to read and .

    27. 17 books Some good, some great, some not bad but confusing I loved reading a story and thinking which fairy tale is this one Hmm it sounds like this one but and it led me to wanting to read from certain authors Now I have a bigger list

    28. Not much to say about this adthology Yes, the mis spelling is deliberate Seventeen re imagined kid s fairy tales all leading up to commercials for their writers I ll simply leave it at some are better than others

    29. Entertaining twisted fairy tales book Not all the stories end happily ever after, but the stories are well written and entertaining A couple of the stories are mini books and a bit long, but most of the stories are fairly short.

    30. It s okSome stories were niceothers meh I passed through some of them.I would not recommend this book to anyone I
